Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, which is in turn based on L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz,” “Wicked” sees Elphaba (Alison Luff), the future Wicked Witch of The West, and Galinda (Jenn Gambatese), the eventual Glinda the Good, meet as young girls at school. Despite their social differences — one is popular and the other is, well, green — they form an unlikely bond. In this song, “For Good,” the duo reflects on the lingering power of friendship, and the importance of sticking together through thick and thin.

Video of the dressing room at the San Diego Civic Theatre, where the star of the musical “Wicked” transforms into the green witch before each performance by CBS8.

About 45 minutes before each performance, Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, is born backstage. The green makeup goes on wet, but dries within seconds. Makeup artist Christina Tracey, who has done this more than 1,000 times, then uses a translucent powder to keep the green from rubbing off. The process takes about 20 minutes.

Actress Nicole Parker is now part of the national tour playing at the San Diego Civic Theatre, after starring in the role on Broadway in 2009. You may recognize the Emmy Award-winning actress from the sketch comedy television series MADtv.

Parker tells News 8 she sometimes prefers her green sheen, saying, “You almost get used to being green, almost to the point where I like myself better. It looks more normal to me. It’s like a blank slate. I think it changes my face for the better. I love it, I think it’s really pretty make-up.”

Tracey tells News 8, “A lot of people confuse it with the wicked witch they know and it’s nothing like that in our show. She’s very pretty, she’s designed to be almost the prettiest girl in Oz. It just happens that her skin is green. So she’s very beautiful.”

She’s beautiful, and not really the bad witch she’s portrayed to be in “The Wizard of Oz.” We learn in “Wicked” that Elphaba is shunned and scorned just because she’s different, just because she’s green. Fans tell Parker all the time how much Elphaba has inspired them.

The Broadway musical “Wicked” is in Birmingham playing at BJCC Concert Hall. This company travels around the country performing 52 weeks a year and the one thing most people remember about this show is the main character is green.

Fox 6 had a backstage pass to interview some of the cast members – Wacth Video below:


Transforming Anne Brummel into her character, Elphaba, takes about 30 minutes.

Makeup artist Joyce McGilberry applies a mixture of water and green paint to performer Anne Brummel. “To me it’s just work and once the green is on you really become Elphaba the character,” Brummel said.

Using water and green paint, makeup artist Joyce McGilberry colors Anne’s face and chest with a brush. After that she applies a powder that keeps in the paint in place.

“That keeps it pretty still. It comes off in a few places. A certain gentleman might get it on his face occasionally when we kiss but it stays pretty set because of the powder,” Brummel said.

During the month-long stop in Birmingham Brummel and McGilberry will go through about 25 packs of green paint and countless packs of powder, but being green provides some other makeup challenges. Instead of using pink for blush, McGilberry uses purple.

“The green will give the appearance of flattening out the face so we use the purple to lift her cheekbones,” McGilberry said.

Brummel and McGilberry said all of the hard prep work pays off when the audience gets to see the final product on stage.

“I can’t imagine doing this role without the green. I don’t think it would be the same,” Brummel said.

As for getting the green paint off, Brummel says it takes about 10 minutes to scrub it off. She has a shower in her dressing room so she can wash it off before she leaves the BJCC.
